Started in 2010 on an abandoned oil field and illegal dump we built Farm Lot 59. It took a year to clean up the debris, remove the contaminated dirt and start to build our soil. Now 6 years later we have a thriving working farm in the city of Long Beach.
We believe everyone should have access to fresh, healthy organic produce, herbs and fruit. We know our .5 acre farm cannot feed the 500,000 residents of this diverse city so we focus on teaching the next level of citizen farmers.
Farm Lot 59 creates an urban/ rural connection within the local community and serves as an educational resource for sustainability. Everyone can come and visit us and learn about urban farming and earth’s ecosystems. We have bees for pollination and honey, we grow vegetables, fruit and flowers without any pesticides, herbicides or chemicals. We practice organic and biodynamic principles.
We are an urban farm that creates local green jobs and grows healthy fresh food on a historically significant site. We make a difference in our local and global community by combining resources with the city, local partners, and friends. We are the vision of eating well and living healthy lives.
